Story

It’s 2104, the colonisation ship Covenant, is transporting 2000 colonists in stasis and 1140 human embryos in cold storage to a distant planet Origae-6, which is still 7 years away.

The ship encounters a technical problems due to solar pulse and the core crew is awaken by the ships caretaker, an android named Walter, a newer model of David, the synthetic on board the Prometheus 10 years earlier.

Once emergency repairs are completed, the freshly awakened crew receive a mysterious signal from a nearby planet. Scans suggest the planet is far more habitable than their intended destination; this would save years of terraforming and their journey would end in matter of weeks rather than years.

They adjust course…

What is this mysterious signal?

What intelligence could create it?

The planets stormy upper atmosphere will make transportation limited and communications patchy, but the lush green jungles and stunning landscapes seem perfect for a new start for humanity.

Maybe too perfect according to some.

During the ensuing running & screaming, we discover the origins of the Xenomorph and the fate of the survivors of Prometheus
